Romney and the RNC: Who cares what the voters want…..

…..it is all about money.

Why bother with pesky primaries?

In a move reminiscent of the Rule 11 debacle during the Ehrlich/Murphy primary two years ago, the Republican National Committee, anxious to continue its coronation of Mitt Romney, will be raising funds jointly according to the Wall Street Journal this morning:

In a move that shows Republicans [Establishment Republicans!—ed] are coalescing around the party’s front-runner, Mitt Romney plans to begin raising money jointly with the Republican National Committee this week as both the candidate and the GOP brace for an expensive general-election fight against President Barack Obama.

The arrangement will allow top donors to write checks as large as $75,000 per person, by giving to party organizations in addition to the campaign. That’s far more than the $2,500 ceiling that applies to individual donations to a presidential candidate for the fall election.

S**** the voters, it’s full steam ahead.

Is it Tea Party time yet?
